Fellowes M-12C Shredder for Spring Gifting #GiftFellowes #IC

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. Some links in this post contain affiliate links and I will receive a small commission if you make a purchase after clicking on my link.

The clocks have been set an hour forward; the temperature outside is going to be slightly above freezing for a few days.... it seems that Spring is just around the corner. Or at least I hope it is because I can tell you that this New England lady is really sick of zero temps and snow. With Spring often comes weddings and showers and house warming parties and the Fellowes M-12C Shredder will make a sensible gift for any of those occasions.

Fellowes M-12C Shredder Features:
  • Cross-Cut blades that shreds up to 12 sheets of paper at a time
  • Each sheet is shred into approximately 302 particles
  • SafeSense® Technology automatically disables the shredder when hands touch the paper opening
  • Shreds credit cards, paper clips, staples and junk mail
  • Shreds for 5 minutes before automatic cool down

I've had this shredder for a few months now and it is definitely the best one I have ever owned. (Read my Fellowes M-12C Shredder review). It is powerful enough to shred multiple pages at a time (up to 12), including staples, which makes the shredding process so much faster and less tedious. No longer do I let my shredding pile build when I can quickly zip pages through whenever necessary.

But why would you want to give this as a gift to someone? I know it is not really a fun gift but it is very practical and in my opinion necessary, which overrides fun or cute any day. I certainly would rather have a shredder I will use often over those crystal candlesticks that will just collect dust for the next 25 years. (Seriously, why did I register for those candlesticks? I don't even burn candles.) In this day and age, sadly we can't trust very many people. Identity theft doesn't just happen through online means, but it can be achieved by merely going through one's trash. Using a shredder to destroy any information sensitive documents gives you another layer of protection and I feel it is something many young couples probably overlook.

In addition to all of its capabilities, the Fellowes M-12C Shredder also has built in safety features to keep not only little hands safe but your own as well. When skin makes contact with the silver metal around the paper opening, it immediately stops. I also like to keep mine unplugged when not in use for an added safeguard. So if the couple you're gifting this to has little ones running around, or plans to soon, they know that those tiny fingers are safe. 

Do you have any weddings, showers or housewarming events to attend this Spring? We have one wedding coming up in May that I am looking forward to.

Fellowes M-12C Shredder is available at Target with a suggested retail price of $99.99
