How to Surprise Your Partner with Breakfast in Bed

The most romantic morning begins with a surprise breakfast in bed. This classic romantic gesture takes some level of skill to pull off, as the aroma of delicious eggs and warm buttered bread wafting in the air could easily awake your partner. So, we’ve gathered together to share the best way to surprise him or her with these 6 simple tips. All from personal experience.

1. Wake up early.
Slide out of bed much earlier than the time you usually wake up. This is crucial! You can’t get out of bed 30 minutes before your usual wakeup time, as your partner could easily wake up right along with you. Instead, try at least an hour beforehand, so that you don’t run the risk of disturbing their sleep, and to give you plenty of time to prepare.

2. Cook something special.
If coffee and toast are your usual, try a new recipe for this special morning. There are so many incredible food magazines and food bloggers that share delicious breakfast recipes. And don’t forget to include avocado as your morning aphrodisiac.

3. Add something special.
A note, a bouquet of roses, a sexy coupon - add anything to the breakfast in bed tray that will make the surprise even better.

4. Don’t forget the essentials.
The tray should match your lover’s personality. If they love reading the news in the morning, get a tray with slots for an iPad, and pull up their favorite news site. We love this mahogany one from Amazon. Or if they love fashion and decor, get a tray with a white base and gold handles like this one. Plus a beautiful glass for their breakfast juice.

5. Clean the kitchen before the surprise!
You want to make sure your partner doesn’t leave the room to see a messy kitchen. Be sure to make sure all the food is put away, and the dishes are in the dishwasher.

6. Be gentle.
Wake your partner with a soft kiss and let them know that you have a surprise. Have them close their eyes and then walk in with the tray for the grand surprise.

Bonus tip: Get in bed and share a bite! Put on something sexy like a sheer robe, silk boxers, or beautiful pajamas. Then slide back in bed with your partner.
