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

IDK...I think it's kinda tacky.

It would be one thing if the person brought a gift and then brought along their hand-me-downs. But a shower is generally an occasion where you give new gifts, not the stuff you have cleaned out of your closet.

 Depends.  If the item is much-needed and in great condition, no problem.  But if it's dirty, torn, worn-out, etc. then I'd be insulted!

Depends on the condition of stuff. I got a bunch of bedding given to me. It's all in great shape.

Unless it was in bad condition or broken, no.

Personally I think it's tacky to do hand-me-downs at a shower, but if she wanted to give you them at a different time, that's perfectly acceptable.
