Is there anything better than breakfast in bed? If you ask me, then yes, yes there is. Breakfast in bed is messy. And hard to eat. Between all the pillows and the breakable glassware and the whole crumbs issue, I find the gesture to be highly overrated. However! Breakfast doesn't have to be served in bed to be considered romantic. There are all kinds of fun and quixotic ways to serve up the most important meal of the day that won't leave you worried about staining your sheets or getting oatmeal on the lampshade. 

So this Valentine's Day, consider these five romantic breakfast ideas that will show your loved ones just how much you care. 

1. Show the love

Nothing says "I love you" more than eggs in a heart-shaped basket, right? It's so cute. And you don't need a heart cookie-cutter, either -- you can cut the heart out of the toast with a knife. Feed this to your sweetheart with a side of bacon and they'll love you forever.

2. Keep it Sweet

You could always appeal to their sweet tooth with some homemade chocolate waffles for a Valentine's Day breakfast. The name says it all, and they sound delicious. Add some cocoa powder to your favorite waffle recipe and boom! Special and ultra romantic Valentine's Day breakfast.

3. Keep it Healthy AND Tasty
Perhaps your love is a health nut or still adhering to one of those hateful New Year's resolutions to eat better. In that case, whip up this orange sunrise smoothie to show them you love their heart ... and their arteries. Garnish with some naturally heart-shaped strawberries and serve with a heart-shaped straw.

4. Get Tipsy

If you're lucky enough to have taken Valentine's Day off, why not start the romantic day with some champagne? Make that pink champagne for your romantic Valentine's Day breakfast! Use this delicious raspberry royale recipe for a simple yet impressive morning cocktail.

5. Keep It Simple

And if you hate cooking or if you have less than 30 seconds in the morning, you can still do something special for a romantic Valentine's Day breakfast. Serve their yogurt and granola in a martini glass, or plate those pop tarts on your best china. Using your fanciest glass and tabletop wares really classes up the morning routine. Throw a rose, or a flower from your neighbor's yard, on the dish for extra pizazz and love.

Happy romancing!
