Need Help: What to have delivered to FI for his birthday?

Tomorrow is FI's birthday and whenever either of us has to work on our birthday we send each other a little gift at work.  We also do cards, cakes, gifts, dinner out or in, etc. at home, but we just like to do something for the birthday person to receive in the middle of a stressed out day at work.  FI really loves it because anytime anyone at his job has food to share that person instantly becomes Mr. Popularity for the day, haha.

In the past I've sent him Edible Arrangements, those giant Mrs. Fields cookies, and I've even surprised him at work with some homemade goodies and taken him out to lunch.  I want to send him something new this year, though... any ideas??

    Lunch would definitely be a good idea except he has a meeting during lunch tomorrow, so knowing him he'll be eating more than his fair share of free food while there, haha.

    I brought in soft pretzels from Philly Pretzel Factory one day, and my coworkers went nuts over them. Plus they were quite inexpensive ... I bought enough for the whole office, and a few containers of flavored mustard, for only $20.

    They also liked when I brought in sprinkled donuts and cookies from a local bakery, and I made cupcakes a couple weeks ago that were gobbled up. I also try to bring in some fruit if I bring in treats, because we have some health-conscious people and one person is vegan so I don't want them to feel left out, so you could slice up some fruit or buy a supermarket ready-made platter. Maybe with some chocolate or yogurt dips in containers on the side.

    I saw you said he works in NYC. I wonder if Cold Stone Creamery would deliver? Or maybe get one of those Italian ice street vendors to park outside and you can pre-pay for some ice for them?

    I don't know your FI sense of humor, but one year friends and I got together and sent a clown/singing telegram to a friend at work for his birthday! It was hysterical!!!!

    OMG once (for an ex actually) I send a gorilla (aka some poor dude in a gorilla suit) with balloons to his work! It was the funniest thing... such a big head! I had been looking for a singing telegram, but came across the gorilla and went with that! It was soooo long ago ~ 10+ years ~ but I am sure if you do some searches for something related you will find something just as highly entertaining!

    Ohhhhhh I LOVE the pretzel idea!!!

    The singing telegram would be amazingly funny and FI would think it was hilarious/be totally humiliated, but I'm 99.9% sure his bosses wouldn't find it funny at all,  haha.

    Thanks for the ideas ladies!!!  I may wind up just doing Crumbs again since that was such a huge hit the last time.

    This may be a stupid question- but do you just call up crumbs and say I need X amount of cupcakes delivered to X address?

    I'm curious how this works!

    If you want them delivered outside of the NYC area, you do it online and I think they ship them frozen or something like that.

    If you're having them delivered locally in NYC, you just call up one of the Crumbs stores and tell them which cupcakes you want, what size, and how many and they'll deliver them for you on whatever day/time you want.  Delivery is $18.
