Brooke Burke went through three months of intense, seven days a week, eight-hour-a-day rehearsals and live TV performances for Dancing With the Stars before finally grabbing the champion trophy with her partner Derek Hough, so it’s no wonder she’s tired!

 

"Amazing. I mean truly just to throw our heart and soul into something for that long, the payoff is incredible," she tells OK! of winning the competition. "Right now right now it’s just about rest and family time. I’m going to let a few minor injuries heal."

 

Although she’s tired, Brooke is also excited about future possibilities, now that she’s tackled dancing.

 

"I feel like I can do anything now after accomplishing that," she reveals, adding, "I probably won’t do anything physical and scary for a long time."

 

For the reality TV star, her time is all about being with her family for the holidays.

 

"This year it’s going to be a very relaxing family holiday," she says. "We’ll probably stay in town and do a big Christmas dinner for family and friends that I need to catch up with, decorate the house, we do a big Christmas tree decorating party, and just lay low this year because it’s been such an intense three months."

 

And while Brooke says she loves getting homemade art and abstract pieces from her kids, she’s also working with Giftscriptions, which allow the giftee their choice of magazine subscription.

 

"I have to be really sensible this season because I don’t have a lot of time, and the way the economy is right now I think smart gifts that people can personalize are a great idea," says the busy mom.

 

After the holidays have passed and she’s had some relaxation time, Brooke says she’ll be ready to tackle new projects, whatever they may be.

 

"I want to make sure I do something I feel really passionate about next," she reveals to OK!. "I’d love to do a sitcom, I’m really open right now. The show has presented a lot of great things to many people in the past, so, I’m going to enjoy the holidays, gear up for next year and kind of take it day by day."
 

 

 

 

, and workingWho would you like to see on the show next?:

I think David would do really well if he gets the opportunity, im not sure I want him to stress out like I did though. Umm… it’d be fun to see like de la Hoya, fun to see… I think it’s nice tosee people who have absolutely no dance experience go on, get vulnerable and take a chance.

Where do you want to go next, professionally?:

I love hosting, that probably makes sense. I want to make sure I do something I feel really passionate about next. I’d love to do a sitcom, I’m really open right now. The show has presented a lot of great things to many people in the past, so, I’m going to enjoy the holidays, gear up for next year and kind of take it day by day.

Tell me about Giftscriptions, do you read magazines?:

I love to read magazines, for me I have to be really sensible this season because I don’t have a lot of time, and the way the economy is right now I think smart gifts that people can personalize are a great idea. Giftscriptions are under 20 bucks, it’s a gift that you can have around for stocking stuffers, you can give it to someone and make it personal and choose their own magazine. So it’s just a great sensible easy one to have around for those people that are just a little more difficult to buy for. I’m trying to give sensible, sentimental things, some personally engraved items for my kids and my family, and I love homemade things as well, I love receiving that kind of stuff from my children.

Best xmas present ever?:

I love getting abstract art and homemade pieces from my children that I frame and I cherish and that’s always amazing.

Will you give your husband a Giftscription?

No but I’ll give him something engraved from the children. A piece of jewelry or something.

What’s your ideal family vacation to start relaxing after these last three months?

Maybe something warm, mix it up a little bit over the holidays, we love to go to Mexico, easy for us on the west coast, usually we spend Christmas/new year’s in St. Bart’s but this year it’s going to be a very relaxing family holiday. We’ll probably stay in town and do a big Christmas dinner for family and friends that I need to catch up with, decorate the house, we do a big Christmas tree decorating party, and just lay low this year because it’s been such an intense three months. That’s all I could ask for, family time.
