Date nights don’t come around very often, so you want each one to be perfect. Luckily, there are some gadgets and apps to help you plan and enjoy the ultimate date night.

Staying In

Pico Brew

Brew up some craft-style beer for your date night with Pico Brew. Pico Brew is a home brewing system that replicates the process used in craft breweries but is small enough to fit on your counter.

While your date night meal is cooking and your beer is finishing up, you can decide what to watch. It’s well-known that Netflix has enough movies and shows to choose from, and sometimes you can get lost in searching for the right film. With Upflix you can set your interests and favorite genres so you can search for the perfect movie more efficiently. It also gives you a real-time list of movies and shows newly available on Netflix.
