Regarding "hydrogen" bonding

How come the compounds CH2O and CH3OCH3 do not exhibit hydrogen bonding, as opposed to compounds like CH3CH2OH and CH3NH2?

It's indicated in my solutions manual that the two compounds that don't exhibit hydrogen bonding can be H-bond acceptors, not donors. I'm not quite sure what this means...

Thank you!
