Breakfast in bed ideas

Making breakfast in bed for someone is the perfect way to show them just how much they mean to you. Mother's Day, Father's Day, birthdays or even just any old Sunday, breakfast in bed is the perfect way to start a lazy day - but what should you make? We've got plenty of inspiration

Nothing shows someone you care more than a freshly made breakfast in bed. Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, birthdays or even just a plain on Sunday, a breakfast in bed is the perfect way to start a lazy day.

When you think of breakfast, your mind often goes to the same old recipes but making a breakfast in bed is the perfect time to try something a little different. French toast, pancakes – even porridge can be given a tasty twist once you know how, we’ve got lots of breakfast in bed ideas to inspire you.

Things you will need when serving breakfast in bed:

  • A tray: Big enough to balance food and drinks so you haven’t got to go back and forth.
  • Cutlery: There’s nothing worse than getting half way up the stairs and realising you’ve forgotten the cutlery. Make sure you’ve got this on your tray before you embark up the stairs.
  • Napkins or kitchen roll: These are a must if you want breakfast in bed to be a relaxing time without worrying all the crumbs you’ll be sleeping on that evening.
  • Flowers: If you’re making breakfast in bed for someone special, make them smile even more by popping a little bouquet or even a single flower into a small vase or jar on your tray.

Pancakes aren’t just for Pancake Day you know. They can be a weekend treat too and are so simple to make – the trick is to make a big batch at a time. When you make a pancake, pop it on a plate, cover in tin foil and make the rest. Once you’re happy with the amount you’ve made you can prepare the fillings. It’s as simple as that!

To serve in bed: We’d recommend bringing a small choice of fillings to the bedroom so you can assemble the pancakes in the comfort of your own bed. Bring honey, jam, Nutella or peanut butter, to the bedroom in their jars, (or you could be extra fancy and spoon them in to little dishes and serve with teaspoons.)
