A top item on Valentin Chmerkovskiy's holiday wish list is a Mirrorball Trophy. He is competing with The Bachelorette alum Gabby Windey on this season of Dancing With the Stars. In between dance rehearsals, the DWTS pro shared his holiday gift guide picks with E! readers.
"Make it personal, and don't be afraid to ask others for suggestions," Val advised holiday shoppers. The dad-to-be is looking forward to spending time with family this holiday season, remarking, "Family over everything. They're most important in life, so I always love being able to relax with the people that mean the most to me." That's why it's no surprise that Val's gift picks are family-oriented. His selections include picks inspired by his wife Jenna Johnson Chmerkovskiy and some dance lessons with Val, Jenna, Val's brother Maksim Chmerkovskiy and sister-in-law Peta Murgatroyd.
The DWTS semi-finals are live on November 14, 2022, at 8 PM ET on Disney+.
