Six Easy Online Treats for Mom this “Stay-at-home Quarantine” Mother’s Day

A guide for the quarantined Mother’s Day celebration.

Had I known the lockdowns would be stretched this long, I would have went home to spend everyday like it is Mother’s day. Good thing, there is PayMaya! 

If Dad influenced me with “people” traits that made selling easier to do, Mom on the other hand, raised me with an artillery of eloquence that made networking second nature to me.

I had to address mom as  “Teacher Eden” when I was in kindergarten. She was my Reading teacher at school.

“Teacher Eden’s” upbringing attributed my confidence in public speaking, tactfulness and the love for bespoke haberdashery. When I communicate, may it be with one person or an audience, speaking or writing, even from preparing what to wear to planning what to wear in the next speaking engagement, I always remember her and her pointers. Obviously, as I devote this post to her, I miss her so much that if I had known the lockdowns would be stretched this long, I would have went home to spend everyday like it is Mother’s day. Good thing, there is PayMaya! 

To those away sons (and daughters) who want to honor their queen as the world dedicates a day for Moms (“quarantined” version this year), here is a guide on online treats you can purchase for her, contactless and cashless with convenience.

1. Mother’s Day cake

Make it sure that mom’s 2020 Mother’s Day memory is worth reminiscing through a photo on her timeline, home quarantined with a Mother’s Day cake. Send her a video greeting too and add a lovely bouquet if delivery is possible.

Visit for branch serviceability. Available for pick-up or delivery.

2. Be extra thoughtful with her wellbeing.

Sponsor her quarantine-long Vitamin C, disinfectants, beauty and other health-pampering essentials. Encourage her to try at least an hour daily of decluttering the anxiety brought by being “locked at home” with a facial mask on, sips of a warm calming tea and her favorite songs playing in the background. Send to her a video of your Mother-son (-daughter) theme song, too! Ours is Eternal Flame by The Bangles. What is yours?

3. Treat Mom a warm Mother’s day meal.

A Mother’s day meal with loved-ones makes her heart and tummy full. You can  check the following PayMaya partner restaurants on food delivery apps: McDonald’s, Goldilocks, Army Navy, Shakey’s, Chowking, Burger King, Domino’s Pizza, Sariwon Korean Barbecue, Soban K-Town Grill, and Sibyullee Unlimited Korean BBQ. Pay using your phone number for up to 100% Balik Bayad! 

Or, search for local online food sellers and pay via fund transfer using the PayMaya app.

NO TRANSFER FEE. Pay the local online seller via fund transfer using the PayMaya app to their bank account.

4. Let Mom greet her fellow mothers too!

See to it that Mom can still socialize with friends and relatives even with curfew and social distancing. Mom loves to send greetings on her group chats or even through video calls. Purchase for her data packages at discounted rates using the PayMaya app. Send to her the link of your Mother-Son (-Daughter) favorite movie, too. Ours is Titanic. We watched it twice at the movie house in 1998. Go send yours to your super Mom too!

5. Help her save a bit for her self.

Settle her one month personal bills and shoulder a month-long household bills. Take care of the groceries by ordering online, and settle the bills with the help of your PayMaya app. 

Help Mom save! You can pay for her SSS and Pag-IBIG contributions through the PayMaya app. (Below)  You can even get P100 Balik Bayad when you pay a PLDT bill worth at least P1,000 this month, as well as P50 Balik Bayad for Smart and Sun postpaid bills.

6. Just send to her an extra money for whatever she wants to own online.

Though you are doing it as a monthly commitment to send her a fund. Giving Mom another amount than the usual “allotment” would make her feel more at ease that whenever she wants something at this challenging time where you have to follow Quarantine Pass coding to go out and have to be in long queues at banks, she has an extra money for it conveniently online. Teach her how to use the PayMaya app by doing financial transactions with her through the it.

Teach Mom, Nanay, Mama, the rewarding and convenient cashless lifestyle through the PayMaya app.

It is easy to sign up for you and your Mom’s PayMaya account in time for Mother’s Day! The services processed by the app are exactly what you and your Mom need from this year until the next Mother’s Days. Happy Mother’s Day to your Mom!
