I think the first time I had breakfast in bed was on my 21st birthday when my sister woke up early, cooked everything, set it all up in a pretty tray and came into my room to surprise me.
We had the best time ever and it’s still one of my fondest MEMORIES!
Since Valentine’s day is only a day away, I thought I would share these SIMPLE breakfast in bed ideas that are sure to win you some brownie points 😉
Let’s start with this pink and white breakfast in bed tray, which is my absolute FAVORITE.
- Strawberry milk
- Triple chocolate granola bars
- Dunkin’ Donuts heart shaped donuts
I LOVE how Dunkin’ Donuts released these Chocolate-Covered Raspberry and Brownie Batter Crumble heart donuts just in time for Valentine’s day.
THEY are ADORABLE and delicious plus it’s a WONDERFUL way for two people to share their love for sweet treats! 😉
I bought a dozen to sample and honestly, we had none leftover. Everyone LOVED them!
You can also get more updates about Dunkin’ Donuts new products here. They are constantly coming out with new treats and it’s so exciting!
Here’s another breakfast in bed idea.
This one reminds me of SUMMER and sunshine and brings a big smile to my face.
- Dunkin’ Donuts croissant
My son helped me set up this next tray and I love how BRIGHT and colorful it turned out.
- Heart shaped Nutella sandwiches
- Strawberries and frozen blueberries
- Dunkin’ Donuts “Vanilla Cupcake Swirl” Coffee (Guys! This coffee in INCREDIBLE! You can taste the wonderful vanilla cupcake flavor in each sip and smell the PHENOMENAL sweet aroma. It is a strong flavor but not over-whelming which is fantastic! Seriously, I have been ordering it every morning for the past few days…lol. They have also released a “Fudge Brownie Swirl” coffee flavor and that’s really good too. You can taste hints of chocolate and brownie in each sip….Mmmmmmmm! Also, you can enjoy both of these flavors in hot or iced coffees, lattes and macchiatos. I, personally, like it in my hot coffee).
Now, this next breakfast tray would be a GREAT breakfast in bed for your boyfriend, husband or even your dad.
This tray has a masculine RUSTIC charm, thanks to the wooden tray and blue color scheme.

Here is another “MANLY” breakfast in bed tray with more neutral color tones.

Here are some TIPS for making the PERFECT breakfast in bed tray:
- Make sure to coordinate colors of your tray, plates, napkins, utensils properly. The colors should all compliment each other.
- You don’t have to make everything from scratch. You can buy a lot of food and drinks from the grocery store or your favorite bakery and coffee shops like Dunkin’ Donuts.
- Don’t over-fill your tray. It should be kept simple and clean and must include your partner’s favorite breakfast items.
- Make sure to use a sturdy tray so that everything is stable and nothing is rolling around when you place it on the bed or the side table.
Also, here are some COMMON questions and answers that are probably going through your mind…
What is best breakfast in bed? What makes a good breakfast in bed?
That varies greatly. It all depends on what your partner enjoys.
In my opinion, a good breakfast tray should include the following: 1 beverage, 2 food items, 1 type of decoration (e.g. flowers or petals), 1 magazine or newspaper, utensils and napkins. It makes the most balanced tray without looking cluttered.
