Don'tSaySleepNumberBedFilter: How to cope with very different sleeping preferences (hard/soft, warm/cool)?

One person likes hard mattresses and staying cool. The other loves snuggling down into soft surfaces. How to deal? My mattress in incredibly hard, so I use a 4 inch memory foam topper. (I bought the hard mattress hoping it would be comfy for the SO, which it is, but it is so hard I physically cannot sleep on it by itself.) How can I make this bed not awful for someone who gets hot and achy from sleeping on it with the extra cushioning? Cut the topper in half? Remove the topper, buy a body pillow and sleep on top of it? Buy two duvets and use mine as a cocoon of padding? Is there some kind of natural-fiber mattress pad that will take the hard edge off my brick of a mattress without turning the bed into a warm nest of misery for my SO?
Constraint: No buying a new mattress.
