Would you be offended if someone gave you hand me downs as a gift for a baby shower ?

Nope not at all...unless it was in really bad condition. I got a used Boppy with a new cover for my baby shower for my ds, and I loved it!

If someone cared enough to bring me things for my baby when they did not have to, I would gladly accept them.  Babies grow so quickly that they hardly have time to wear and use things more than a few times before they are too big.

I would not care. i would actually be grateful. giving away my sons baby clothes was hard on me (i have no clue why) and I waited until I found just the right person to give them to.

I wouldn't care.  They grow out of stuff so quick sometimes they are lucky to wear something twice before they are too big for it.

I wouldn't really care. Baby showers are more of a celebration of mom and baby-gifts aren't required-and if someone is generous enough to bring a gift, I'd be greatful.
Would I personally do it? Probably not, but, I wouldn't care to receive gently used baby items.

Depends. My mother saved a bunch of baby blankets our babcia (great grandmother) made when we were babies.  When my cousin became pregnant with her first, I gifted her one at her shower, the whole reception hall was in tears.
