That's not an apology, that's the birthday present.

When my daughter was 12, I forgot it was her birthday in the morning while taking her to school. I hear about it still. She's 31 YO.

Half don't feel bad. It happens from time to time. You can always make it up somehow. Have a belated birthday surprise party or something like that.

don't feel bad hb.

we didn't celebrate my birthday last year. dw said she was so busy with the baby the she had no time to shop, and offered to take me to a store to get something that day, but it seemed like it was too much of a bother so i just skipped it.
same went for father's day, and it's looking like this year's birthday will be the same.

the odd thing is i don't need or really want anything, so the lack of a gift doesn't bother me. a card or a hug woulda been nice, but you can't get blood from a stone.

i would have been happy with the present mugsy suggested, tho.

andy, it's either an apology, or a gift, depending on the effort.

HB - 2 years ago my h and kids all forgot it was my birthday (not easy to, as it's usually within a day or two of Thanksgiving). I didn't say anything till 9:30 that night. I just quietly told them and went to bed. My boys immediately ran to their rooms and made beautiful cards. (they obviously got this from me because...) my h said "hmmm. oh well." that was it. I never even got a card or a hug.

Do this for your husband....Call him right now! Call and tell him that you can't believe you forgot his special day and that you'd like to take him out for a special treat tonight. Cancel whatever plans you have and take him out! Perhaps an evening picnic under the stars with a bottle of wine would be nice.

PeppA forgot my B-day this year. Honestly, I'm with BT, I don't want or need anything, but a cake would have been nice.

Ahhhh, no one likes to be forgotten.
But, do a few nice things for him and you're sure to be forgiven.
