This image will be a familiar one: it's our old friend the testcard. It's not the biggest of all bags – only suitable for one – but who cares when it looks this cool.
The Belgian fashion designer has teamed up with Eastpak to produce this cotton-outer bag. It has a large main compartment with a grab handle and shoulder strap.
Make your relatives jealous with this compact bag from French brand APC. It's made from leather and canvas and is perfect for one person on a one-night stay.
A neat, inexpensive hold-all. It's 100 per cent cotton and divides between one big pocket and two side pouches, which are handy for your Christmas bits and bobs.
Lugging a bag around can soon become a pain. So let the wheels on this extendable bag take the strain. It's small enough to carry into the plane cabin, too.
One for the teen in the family. It's big enough to hold a day or two's clothes and features both a shoulder strap and in-hand handles. Plus, you get a 30-year warranty.
If you're a couple, you'll want something a bit larger. This is your man (or woman): it's made of durable polyester with a central divider panel to separate your stuff.
This smart charcoal bag comes with a clever divider system, including a lockable space for laptops and a "personal" compartment unseen when the business part is open.
The Delsey feels light but it's as strong as an ox. It has a dividing system inside, so your clothes stay away from your presents.
