Holiday Gift Guide: Fellowes M-12C Paper Shredder

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Fellowes Brands. I received a product sample to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

With the holidays right around the corner, time is running out to purchase gifts. Every year I try to purchase gifts that the recipient would need or use, too often I have received gifts that just end up sitting in the closet and are eventually donated or re-gifted. For the holidays, why not help friends and family de-clutter their homes while helping them to prevent identity theft with a Fellowes M-12C shredder. I have a few friends that have had their identity stolen, and now five years later they are still struggling with the lingering effects.

Fellowes M-12C Shredder

When it comes to paperwork and receipts, I am a major pack rack and often save everything, my brother is the same exact way and so are my parents. After our recent move I realized how much I truly save, and spent a couple days borrowing my parents to shred old paperwork and receipts that were just piled high in boxes. One item on my wishlist this year was a shredder now that we live a few hours from my parents and I can no longer run over there to borrow their shredder. My brother also recently moved away from my parents and the Fellowes M-12C Shredder would make a perfect gift for the holidays as well.

The Fellowes M-12C Shredder:

  • Slim profile design
  • Cross-Cut blades that can shred up to 12 sheets of paper into 302 pieces per sheet
  • SafeSense® Technology- disables the shredder when hands touch the paper opening, for added safety especially with young children at home
  • Shred credit cards, paper clips, staples and junk mail
  • Shreds for 5 minutes before automatic cool down

Fellowes M-12C Paper Shredder

The past week I have been busy de-cluttering my office as I’ve had junk mail and papers that have been stacked under my desk waiting to be shredded. To protect myself from identity theft I have been waiting to dispose of those papers as many contain valuable bank information, credit card information as well as other personal information. While protecting our identity and bank information has always been a priority, it is even more important now as we will be purchasing a house in the near future, having our identity stolen would be a major set back. It takes just a second to shred a piece a paper but years of stress, grief and anger and when your identity is stolen, take precautions and do what you can to protect your personal information, shred old credit cards, recipes, junk mail and any piece of paper containing personal information.

Buy It:

The Fellowes M-12C Shredder is available at Target Stores nationwide and for a suggested retail price of $99.99.

    Great price for a nice paper shredder, I might be getting one for my sister, I always tell her how important it is to shred documents. Sometimes I catch her just throwing them in the trash.

    These really are nice and I am in the market for one- I havent asked Santa yet either 🙂 I really like my old one but it finally bit the dust. These are great too for composting to break the paper up. You can use these for that as long as the paper isnt glossy!

    They had one of these at a place where I worked – and wow does it ever work great! It would be a nice gift, esp at this time of year!
