This holiday season, I was a little stumped on what to get my best friend. She recently moved and had a baby, but had everything she needed for her new home. After helping her put the finishing touches on her first home office, I realized she didn’t have one of the most important gadgets for her new office: a paper shredder. This is one tool that I feel is invaluable in your home, because fraud is real and rampant. There are people out there who want to steal your information and can ruin your life. It takes a lot to get over identity theft once it happens, so I try to take the necessary precautions to protect myself and my family.
We have been happy users of a Fellowes brand shredder for a few years. I love the safety features, and although I try to unplug it after every use, I know there is a chance my girls can get hurt using it. So, a shredder with safety features is a plus. This holiday, I will be gifting the Fellowes M-12C shredder to my friend, which features their SafeSense Technology and disables the shredder when hands touch the paper opening. The M-12C shredder can cut 12 sheets of paper at a time, and uses Cross-Cut blades to ensure maximum security when shredding your documents. My favorite feature is the ability to shred credit cards and other items that may sometimes get stuck in other shredders- like paper clips and staples. There is also a shut-off feature where the shredder prevents itself from overheating, so after 5 consecutive minutes of shredding, the M-12C will shut down to cool off.
If you are looking to give a gift that they will love, use, AND need, consider the M-12C shredder by Fellowes. It retails for $99.99 and can be purchased at Target stores nationwide. You can find out more by visiting Fellowes and following them on Facebook and Twitter.
