Breakfast trays for a well-deserved breakfast in bed

Child bringing breakfast in bed

by Eleanor Weaver |

Breakfast in bed feels like a luxury reserved for special occasions, whether that’s Mother’s Day or your birthday when your kids, under the watchful eye of an elder sibling or co-parent, will beam with pride as they deliver their attempt at breakfast to you.

We think brekkie in the comfort of your duvet should become a regular thing, and even if not, having a breakfast tray ready for these special moments will provide a level surface to eat from that beats balancing a plate on your lap. It’ll save you from any accidental spillages of jam, orange juice, or ketchup on the bedding that’ll undo the magic when you realise there’s more housework to be done.

So without further ado, here’s our pick of the best breakfast trays that’ll give you that B&B experience in your own home. Plus, they make for a super easy present suggestion to the kids if they’re not sure what Mum needs.

Do I need a breakfast tray?

It might not come to mind as something you need, but we definitely think it’s a lovely extra to have in the home. You can use it for working from home in bed or on the sofa, supporting your laptop or tablet, and, of course, eating breakfast or dinner. Plus, you can find really affordable options that make it a fab gift idea for kids struggling with present ideas, or even something to treat yourself to when you’re looking to find a space to eat or work where there’s a little more peace and quiet. We also think it’ll come in handy if any children get sick and need to stay entertained and hydrated in bed.

If you really think you don’t need one, it might be a great idea instead for grandparents or disabled family members who could use the added stability and support whilst remaining comfortably in bed.
