1. Ally Capellino Freddie waxed-cotton bag

£325, mrporter.com

Made from British Millerain navy waxed cotton with leather trim, so both the style and the bag itself will endure for years to come.

2. Test Screen bag

£30, 01274 203448

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.

3. Kris Van Assche holdall

£83, asos.com

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.

4. APC leather and canvas bag

£195, mrporter.com

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.

5. Burtons Stone holdall

£35, burton.co.uk

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.

6. John Lewis London II

£65, johnlewis.com

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.

7. Stand Two Blue Eastpak

£50, eastpak.com

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.

8. Samsonite Metatrack Duffle

£99, samsonite.co.uk

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.

9. Antler Ultimate Traveller

£99, antler.co.uk

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.

10. Delsey Helium cabin trolley case

£189, bagsdirect.com

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.
