    No, he makes his own.

    No, he buys lunch.

    No, he makes my lunch!

    Yes, every day!

    I do on occasion.

    Slow season right now so DH is eating at home 99% of the time, and therefore is fully capable of making his own lunch.  I usually make enough food the night before for leftovers the next day, though.  If I’m up early enough, I’ll whip up a sandwich.  Come spring/summer/fall when he’s on the field again, I’ll be more keen to pack him a lunch, since he’s so busy that he usually doesn’t have time to pack some real food… or eat it for that matter.

    I used to pack lunches for DH but he would never eat them and instead he would go out and buy lunch.

    I usually do, for several reasons. 1) He would forget and then spend money on lunch when we have perfectly good food for lunch (leftovers of sandwiches), 2) I love him and he really appreciates it, and 3) I religiously make my own and am happy to make him one while I’m at it. He occasionally makes mine if I am super busy.

    I usually make my husband’s lunch to prevent him from getting fast food or something every day. With how hungry my husband always is, it would be so, so expensive!

    Every single day. If I didn’t, he probably would never eat and starve to death. Since I’ve been pregnant though he’ll make himself something to give me more couch time then offer me something:)

    I DO! It’s not super exciting though.  He gets a sandwich, yogert some fruit and a granola bar. If I don’t make his lunch he doesn’t always make the best fast food choices.  Also it’s cheaper than him going out everyday.

    He either buys lunch or I pack him leftovers…

    I really should.  I did when we first moved in together (he was working and I wasn’t) and then I stopped after I broke my ankle and literally couldn’t.  I’m back to work now (on call, so sometimes all week and sometimes only a few days) and it would be nice if I did on the days that I’m home.  Our problem revolves around never having the right groceries on hand to make decent lunches (eg. we rarely eat bread, but it would be helpful when making lunches).

    I voted on occasion because I only do it sometimes.

    I make his lunch every day. We both work and he leaves earlier than I do so I get up early and make his lunch and then go crawl back into bed! I enjoy doing that little thing for him and he really appreciates it 🙂

    I don’t.  My husband’s office is very close to our house, so he usually goes home for lunch.

    @regberadaisy:  Yep, it is pretty awesome. His employer (a posh golf course) chooses thier vendors based on 5 year contracts. He’s been there 7 years, and for the first 4 it was Subway, now it’s a local pizza/italian place. His crew places thier orders every morning & it’s then delivered. He will officially never eat anything from Subway ever again, which sucks 🙁

    My husband (lucky duck) works 5 minutes from home so he doesn’t need a packed lunch. he comes home every day for lunch and gets to relax awhile and let our dog outside. So I only pack mine in the morning.

    We both usually buy lunch but when we do pack lunches we typically do so together (i.e. he’ll make sandwiches while I pack snacks). Lately he seems to be packing both our lunches.
