How to give a user a delete access to an object without creating a new profile?

Hi All, 
I have a requirement where a user is asking for a delete access to a standard object. Now, I really don't want to create a new profile for the user. Can this issue be resolved using a permission set?

Thanks in Advance,

You can create the permission set and assign the same to user.

A permission set is a collection of settings and permissions that give users access to various tools and functions. The settings and permissions in permission sets are also found in profiles, but permission sets extend users’ functional access without changing their profiles.
