Serve Your Dad Breakfast in Bed

What better way to say I Love You on Father’s Day or his next birthday than with breakfast in bed? Maybe you haven’t thought of doing this for him since you were a child, or since he last served you breakfast in bed. It’s a really nice way to show your appreciation for all of the things your dad means to you and has done for you.

A little thought should be put into the act, however. Such as the tray itself, for example. Don’t use a skimpy one that may slide or tip over. Make sure it’s sturdy, and big enough to hold food, plus a few extra things like flowers, a greeting card, book, magazine, newspaper, or a small gift.

Think about the breakfast itself. What are his favorite breakfast foods? If the answer is all, then give him a sampler platter. After all, it is his special day.

Who wouldn’t want to be served all of their favorite breakfast foods at the same time? Maybe it’s eggs, bacon, hash browns, biscuits, sausage, pancakes, fruit, juice, and coffee.

It doesn’t matter. Splurge a little.

If you’re a very good cook, dare we say chef, this may be a good excuse to buy and use some of those more expensive kitchen gadgets you’ve been wanting. It would be hard to dispute the fact that your dad is worth the extra pampering.

Serving breakfast in bed is one of the nicest things you can do for someone else. It really puts the spotlight on the one you care about.

If you want to put your own little spin on breakfast in bed, then you could be really daring and try a new dish, preferably one that your father will hopefully like.

If your dad has a TV in his room, you could make Father’s Day extra special by giving him a DVD or thumb drive of his favorite movie or TV show. This way he can be entertained while he eats breakfast in bed. Chances are he may ask you to join him, so save some food back for yourself. It’s his special day, so let him invite you to share his breakfast, instead of you imposing. Sometimes the gift of me-time is the greatest gift of all.

If your dad doesn’t have a TV in his room, maybe you could play a CD of his favorite music to help him relax and enjoy the occasion.

When you give a card, an extra touch you can do is write a personal note and tuck it inside, sharing a memory from childhood that you both cherish.
