All those late nights working, coming up with new lucrative ideas, and managing multiple projects at once have finally paid off. Your partner got the promotion! And you couldn’t be more excited for them. More responsibility is coming their way, but before they get up to their elbows in work, they deserve to know how proud you are. Here’s how to successfully celebrate your partner’s promotion.
There’s always an announcement date, and your partner will mark it on their calendar. Take that as a hint to mark it on yours too. You want to lay the groundwork before the big day. During the week leading up to the announcement, send them off with words of encouragement or a special gift so they feel appreciated for all the work they’ve done so far.
Naturally, you’re rooting for them and hoping for the best, but if things don’t go their way, you want to be prepared. Plan to have two cakes delivered to your house by the time they get home. One will say, “Congratulations!” and another will say, “You’re too good for them anyway.” You might just share a laugh.
Enhance Their Image
Your partner may need a new look for the new role. Buy them a gift that helps enhance their image and matches the new role. A gift like this powerfully showcases your appreciation, and more importantly, it shows that the things that are important to them matter to you too.
Their accomplishments and achievements don’t go unnoticed, and you’re fully dedicated to making sure you acknowledge them appropriately. Furthermore, this gift will show you’re fully invested in their future success and professional goals. Their wins are your wins.
Throw a Party
You can never go wrong with a party. People throw them for birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, and retirements, and a promotion deserves the same treatment! Make sure you invite everyone who wants to celebrate their success with you.
This will include friends, family, and of course, coworkers. Plan for food, music, and a time for speeches. The party is about your partner, and now’s the time to shine a light on their work ethic. Go all out with the decorations—you can even use glitter card stock to make them a banner.
Plan a Vacation
All work and no play make for a bad relationship. Leading up to the promotion, your partner probably had no time for a break, and afterward, their free time might be even more limited. Before the position goes into effect, plan for a vacation.
If your partner doesn’t have much time off, the vacation can be over a long weekend. Setting aside some time for relaxation is a great way to get your partner pumped and rejuvenated before they start their new position. They’ll begin their new job with a clear mind.
A relationship means being there for the big and little moments, celebrating them all equally. And your partner’s promotion is definitely worth a successful celebration.
