Airdrop help please

iOS and iPadOS

Hello all, I want to share my Christmas Apple Music playlist with my husband. We both have Apple Music, Bluetooth and Airdrop are on on both phones. I have my Airdrop setting to contacts only. But when I go in to share my playlist, it says no one found yet. Any suggestions? Thanks so much!

Make sure your Apple ID and/or phone number is in the contact list of the other phone. If that doesn't work, temporarily set the AirDrop setting on the receiving device to everyone.

Make sure the receiving device is unlocked, it won’t show up otherwise. Also, I think the Apple ID email address used on the sending device needs to be in the contact information for the sending device for it to be recognized as a contact on the receiving device.

He needs to turn it on too. Don't think the setting on his end matters, but both phones have to be working.
I tuned it on at 1st so that me and Mom could share stuff between us. But she doesn't have it on, and we use other methods like Messenger and email for that.
Happy hollidays!
