Nothing says “I love you” more than waking your partner up with coffee (or a glass of champagne) and breakfast in bed. Start Valentine’s Day in decadent fashion this year and dish up a little love for your Valentine with these five romantic and simple breakfast-in-bed recipes:
- Nutella French toast with strawberries
See Valentine’s Day as the perfect opportunity to indulge in chocolate first thing in the morning. Nutella and strawberries on French toast make the perfect combination and is something you won’t just have every day. As the saying goes, presentation is everything! With a simple breakfast like this, take out all your pretty plates and trays that never get used to dress up your breakfast or get this marble and copper tray to add a modern and stylish look.
- Strawberry smoothies
Valentine’s Day falls on a Tuesday this year, so if you’re pressed for time and need to get to work, why not spoil your partner with a quick and delicious strawberry smoothie in bed. Just combine strawberries, banana, milk, yogurt, ice and some honey, and serve in a stylish glass. If you don’t have a proper smoothie maker, Valentine’s Day could be the perfect opportunity to treat your loved one with a stunning Smeg blender.
- Egg in a basket
Take traditional eggs and toast to a whole new level with this breakfast idea. We’re sure most of you know how to make this, but if you’ve forgotten, let Suzelle DIY remind you with her video “How to win someone’s heart”. If you still need a gift for your lover, why not spoil them with a colourful Smeg toaster.
- Granola Parfait
If you don’t want Valentine’s Day to get in the way of your healthy diet, then a granola parfait is the perfect meal to start your day. All you need to do is stock up on your favourite berries and layer them with some Greek yoghurt and crunchy granola. Serve in these Moroccan yellow snack bowls and make these pretty treats part of your Valentine’s Day gift. Nothing says celebration quite like champagne for breakfast, so toast to your relationship with a mimosa to go with your breakfast.
- Banana pancakes
It is said that William Shakespeare was a big pancake fan, which means breakfast can’t get any more romantic than pancakes in bed. Whip up some heart shaped banana pancakes for the one you love this Valentine’s Day, with a fresh banana and honey to start their day on a sweet note. Add a dedicated pancake pan to your Valentine’s gift to make perfect pancakes every time.
Remember that Valentine’s Day is all about the little details to show you care, so bring your partner some fresh flowers and a copy of their favourite newspaper or magazine to browse through with their breakfast.
