Celebrating Valentine's Day over breakfast can be a special thing. Even if you're getting the kids ready for school or heading out at dawn for an early work meeting, a special breakfast can still happen. You can make it even more special if lingering is possible!

So instead of going out to dinner, start with a rosé Champagne cocktail and whip up something special like a roasted radish and herbed ricotta omelet. Or maybe it's just a really gorgeous piece of avocado toast. The point is to make a little fuss over breakfast. It's a charming way to sweeten your day.

Hot Beverages

Even under normal circumstances, making someone else make the first cup of coffee or tea in the morning is a moment in heaven. For Valentine's Day, it's de rigueur, so get that water boiling first thing.

The Sparkling Beverage

If it isn't a work day, then serving a sparkling wine or Champagne-based cocktail is a great way to say that this isn't your usual breakfast.

The Sparkling Mocktail

And, of course, sometimes it is a work day or alcohol just isn't in the cards. You can still whip up something sparkling and special.

The Main Dish

In general, Valentine's Day breakfast fare usually isn't a green smoothie in a to-go cup. We tend to fuss a little more — okay, a lot more — when we're professing our love for someone. Here are some guidelines for things like French toast and cinnamon buns, as well as decadent eggs and delicious fruit combinations.

Tiny Desserts

Even though it's breakfast, you have to sneak in a little something sweet at the end.
