    It’s your call since we don’t know him! Would it embarrass him? It would mine, but he never likes the spotlight on him, he’s just like that!

    My DH would be embarrassed, but everyone is different.  I would so love that though haha.  How do you think your FH would react?

    My FI would DIE of embarrassment if I sent him something at work, and we work for the sams company so all his coworkers know me. I would pass…but as PP said only you know him!

    I send FI to work with baked goods to share all the time, but I think if something was delivered to him it would embarrass him and the guys would tease him. Also though, he’s a mechanic, so teasing it just what the guys do. Your SO’s coworkers may not be like that

    I voted other, because it really depends on your FI’s personality! I know my FI would love it hehe.

    My husband would absolutely hate if I surprised him with a delivery. He swears that’s “gay” (his word for everything, unfortunately). But only you know your FI. I think it’s cute its just that most men I know would be embarrassed.

    I say do it. 🙂 everyone likes treats. He might be a little surprised, but I bet everyone will only focus on him for 2 seconds then move on to the treats!

    @Katepants:  My concern would be that he’s new to the job. 6 months is a decent amount of time, but still not long enough to where I’d be comfortable doing anything that would draw unnecessary attention to him. I mean, they may not take kindly to having personal things being done during professional time. Is there a breakroom where he could put the basket anyways?

    I like your new idea in the update!  It’s really cute, and will likely be more appreciated. 

    In my office, we actually aren’t allowed to receive deliveries, so you’d also want to be sure he wouldn’t get in trouble if you have something delivered in the future! 🙂

    I hate valentine’s day and I’ve never celebrated it. Not because I was bitter and single but because it holds no value in my relationship. My husband has sent stuff to my office for no reason or for our anniversary but never for a hallmark holiday. He would think it was stupid if I did it for him though.

    @Katepants:  I was thinking about that too! I’m sure everyone will love it if he brings in cookies. You could even make them when he’s not around and surprise him in the privacy of your own home.
