With Mother’s Day this weekend and Father’s Day just around the corner, everyone’s got family on the brain right now. If all of those upcoming family get-togethers have you thinking about your lineage and ancestry — or perhaps a little panic has set in if you’ve yet to do your gift shopping — here’s some good news: Now is one of the best times to snag a DNA kit for super cheap.

For a limited time, you can now save a ton of money on AncestryDNA’s best-selling Genetic Testing Ethnicity kit on Amazon, which is currently 30 percent off in honor of Mother’s Day.

Each kit comes with a saliva collector, which users fill and then send back to the company for testing. After six to eight weeks at their laboratory, participants receive a breakdown of their ethnicity along with information about their family’s migration around the globe. Users also gain access to AncestryDNA’s digital platform to connect with relatives and explore the database containing over 20 billion historical records.

The DNA test, which is one of the most affordable options on the market right now, also makes a thoughtful present for friends or family hoping to learn more about their lineage. Since each box comes with everything they need to get tested and access their results, the kit can easily be gifted and used whenever the recipient chooses.

This kit is also on sale for $89 for a limited time.

No matter what you discover, you’re bound to get some new and exciting getaway inspiration. Just think of it as the ultimate guide for that once-in-a-lifetime world trip you’ve always wanted to take.
