Napkins, servingware, wreaths—hand sanitizer? As holiday entertaining approaches and we slowly start to gather again with friends and family, you’ll want to make sure you’re prepared. And because this is 2021, that involves COVID-19 precautions.

Yes, in an ideal world, guests would wash their hands as soon as they cross your doorstep. But to make it even easier on them, add a discreet and stylish touchless sanitizer dispenser to your entryway. All you have to do is stock up on batteries (they are included in the package for some models) or recharge your dispenser every once in a while.

Sure, it’s not as fun as, say, a floral arrangement or pretty bowl for stashing keys, but we promise that each of the offerings, below, will make you (and your guests) feel at ease as soon as they walk through your door.

Double Duty

Shimmy Home, Shimmy ($74)
Shop

This touchless dispenser hangs on a wall and is offered in three colors. Bonus: It comes with a cartridge and you can pick your favorite scent. And if the kids can’t stop having fun with the new “toy,” you can turn off the touchless sensor to avoid a puddle in your entryway.

Simply Chic

Liquid Sensor Pump, simplehuman ($70)
Shop

From brass to rose gold to polished steel, this dispenser comes in five metallic shades that add glam to any space. And unlike the others listed here, this one’s sensor allows you to control the amount of soap desired: You’ll get little soap if you position your hands close to the nozzle, or more if you place them farther away.
