You log onto hotel web site when you buy your ticket. And in addition to a reserving a room you send a list of what you want to take with you on the coming trip. The gift shop buys the list and has the bag ready when you arrive at the airport hotel of your destination city. All you brought was a small carry on of items the hotel could not obtain. like driver's license and passport.

after MB added link: I like the other earlier ideas' presentation better, but we both have too much expense built in. Maybe an locker room in a cheap sub basement of the airport or hotel, and run out of office in New Delhi. Patron mailed a key or emailed a pass code.

redundant with Pack_20My_20Bag_20F...e_20%28dot_20com%29

       Not a very resourceful hotel then!

       I agree - redundant with the linked idea (I thought I'd seen this somewhere before).

       All my bags are packed, I'm ready to go
I'm standin' here outside your door
I hate to wake you up to say goodbye
  

       But this idea's redundant, [Max] told you so
I'm copy/pasting, and blowin' his horn
You got no votes, don't let it make you cry
  

       Don't kiss me and smile for me
Or tell me that you'll wait for me
You live in San Diego, right close by
  

       When leaving on a jet plane
You don't know when you'll be back again
No, really, you don't know
  

       There's so many times I've played around
So many times I've played around
I'll tell you now, they don't mean a thing
  

       Every place I go, I think of me
Every song I sing, I sing for free
When I come back I can't resist singing
  

       Don't kiss me and smile for me
Or tell me that you'll wait for me
You live in San Diego, right close by
  

       When leaving on a jet plane
You don't know when you'll be back again
No, really, you don't know
  

       Now the time has come to leave you
One more time, I'll mock and tease you
Then close your eyes and I'll be on my way
  

       Dream about the days to come
When you won't have to be fishboned
About the times that I won't have to say ...
  

       Don't kiss me and smile for me
Or tell me that you'll wait for me
You live in San Diego, right close by
  

       'Cause I'm leaving on a jet plane
I don't know when I'll be back again
Oh, babe, I hate to go
  

       When leaving on a jet plane
You don't know when you'll be back again
No, really, you don't know
  

       When you're leaving on a jet plane (Ah ah ah ah) Leaving on a jet plane (Ah ah ah ah) Leaving on a jet plane (Ah ah ah ah) Leaving on a jet plane (Ah ah ah ah) Leaving on a jet plane (Ah ah ah ah) Leaving on a jet plane (Ah ah ah ah) Leaving on a jet plane (Ah ah ah ah) Leaving on a jet plane (Ah ah ah ah) (Leaving) On a jet plane

       Economies of scale might be able to reduce the cost of the alternative of sending your bags on ahead (ie assuming people would use such a service.) As things currently stand, even gift shop prices would be cheaper than baggage forwarding, I think, as it costs almost as much as a ticket.   

       So how about removing the gift shop from the equation?   

       Your local department store lets you buy a suitcase full of new clothes, and you just pick it up on the way to the hotel. So same idea; different prices.

       What about doing this peer-to-peer? You have an account with LuggageSwap.com and you enter your itinery - it matches you with a fellow traveller who is flying out of your arrival airport the same day.
pocmloc, Mar 31 2014
  

       Yes. I'm looking for someone who wears size7 underpants, and uses a medium toothbrush. I'll also swap my pith helmet (invented to literally keep out the deadly rays that today are blocked by the modern aluminium foil hat), for that heavy coat in Moscow.
