    Yep this is what I was going to suggest!

    I like Deanne's suggestion. Put it on the bed, maybe Christmas Eve, maybe New Year's Eve. Maybe we're making assumptions about you sharing the bed. I know many married couples who don't. I doubt your thoughts while making it were of what you would get in return. It's a gift of love. IMHO.

    My husband said that every year (we have been married 43 years now)...but always ended up charging a gift for me...then complained every time the bill came due. When we moved here 5 years ago...we agreed no more charging anything.
    I made him a quilt last year...made it to both of us.

    Wrap the quilt, and make it to the both of you. Put it under the tree and leave it at that. As a stocking stuffer...make up a coupon book...put in it things you can do for him over the coming year, that you don't usually do, but you know he does not enjoy doing...do one time for him...also, if he likes to play golf...and you don't...promise to go with him one time to see what it's about. I just like walking along, nice exercise. You could go as his caddy...stuff like that.

In years past I have given him anniversary or valentines day gifts and he has forgotten to get me something and he feels so bad! So should I give the quilt to him or should I use it as a gift next year? What would you do?

    Thank you for all of your opinions! Given it to both of us is not an option. It is a theme that he enjoys and I have nothing to do with. I spoke with him and told him that I have made him something for Christmas and I don't want anything in return. He is not being lazy about shopping, we truly can't afford it this year. I am finishing my Associates degree in education and I had to quit my job to focus more on school. Thank you again for your support and opinion. I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a blessed New Year!!

    I decreased our income and went back to school. Now I teach nursing students. A husband (family) that supports a member going back to school is a priceless gift. The family members sacrifice almost as much as the student. I'm glad you made him such a personal quilt. What a blessing. Thanks for sharing with us. Merry Christmas and enjoy your break!

One year my daughter gave me a coupon book that she made containing coupons for cleaning house, cooking a meal, making my favorite dessert, etc.

    For years I've been telling my kids that I want my refridgerator cleaned for Christmas. Hasn't happened yet!
