For the mom who’s curious about her ethnic origins or family background, a DNA testing kit makes a great, informative gift. Our favorite is AncestryDNA, which presents test results in a clearer manner than other services and places its ancestry information in a useful historical context. We do urge you to spend a few moments reading the privacy section in our guide, though, since using even the best DNA testing service involves data and privacy risks. A secondary caution: People occasionally discover dark family secrets. If that wouldn’t shatter your mom’s world, though, we think the ancestral findings are compelling enough to justify the risk.
