Receiving presents for partner in the post without them knowing

My partners been through a rough 6 months with her elderly mother and I'd like to order her a few gifts as a surprise without her knowing.  The only issue is she works from home so is usually her who takes any parcels/post/deliveries in.  We don't really know our neighbours enough to ask them, and I'm quite a lone worker in the workplace.  How else can i receive presents through the post without them being delivered to our house?

    Many sellers offer some form of collection from your choice of shop/post office.

    But a banker, engaged at enormous expense,
    Had the whole of their cash in his care.

    Any family or friends local enough to go and pick them up from there?
    Several companies will deliver to supermarket stores for collection- John Lewis for example to waitrose, habitat/argos to sainsburys. Probably others. 

    What is the workplace like? If there is a reception and you asked nicely/bought the nice biscuits would they take it in for you?
