DNA testing kits: the perfect Christmas gift for all the family!

DNA testing kits are the key to feeding your inquisitive nature and understanding what makes you, you... (you can buy one for your pup, too!). Know someone who'd love one? These are the best

A DNA testing kit that allows you to dip into your genealogy pool from the comfort of your home? That sounds like the most original Christmas gift you could give, right? And not only are they effective and easy enough to use at home, they're also affordable. 

Thanks to recent advances in technology, you needn't fork out too much to discover invaluable information about your genetics, be it health and well-being related – or just a general inquisitiveness about your heritage that'll explain those features you have that you can't put your finger on. 

And what's more, some even allow you to find other people all over the globe who share your DNA... so, who knows? You may find a long lost relative! Oh, and we've also included a dog DNA test because you shouldn't underestimate the importance of understanding the genealogy of your pup (training will get a whole lot easier once you really understand what biologically makes them tick!).
