Getting to travel around at Christmas time can be both a blessing and a bother. Whether you're lucky enough to be enjoying this December abroad, or if you're hopping on the train to see the extended family, such short trips make the cumbersome and hard to carry suitcase an excessive amount to carry. As an early gift idea as well as a stylish way to ease the hassle of overnight packing, we present this select choice of holdalls from Blokes Bags; all designed to help carry you through your holiday travels.

Mudd Compartment HoldallThe Mudd Compartment Holdall, made with its own unique pocket to store shoes.

Holdalls, as one can tell by the name alone, are designed to be packed just lightly enough to be carried by hand or shoulder. When only away for a weekend or with only a few essentials, they become the ideal choice over a boxier bit of luggage. All of Blokes Bags modern takes on the classic holdall are incredibly stylish, roomy and have enough features and finishings to make them befitting of any fashionable gent at a variety of price ranges.

These three holdalls are just a small highlight of the high quality brand names and mix of designs to choose from when it comes to picking your new shoulder-worn travel companion.

The Rowallan Oiled Leather Holdall, not content with just being carried down the catwalk of the London fashion show, is our best-selling leather holdall. It's made with quality hide that will improve over time (if that's even possible!), antique brass effect fittings and a detachable shoulder strap. The Tony Perotti Comfy Grip Holdall meanwhile, featuring the company's signature turtle on a leather keyring, is nice and small for an overnight getaway; perfect as a piece of carry-on in wonderful brown or tan. And lastly, one of the leading brands in vegan-made bags, Matt & Nat's Faithless holdall offers a generous amount of space, wrapped in leather-like materials and an interior lining made of 21 recycled plastic bottles.

Plan B Union Jack HoldallPlan B Retro Holdall

We've also got two brand new additions to our holdall range that we think would be particularly well worn by those who's idea of trendy lies in the iconic: Plan B's bowling bag-style carriers; each part of a new range of matching wallets and wash bags. The Union Jack Bowling bag surrounds it's unmissable message with retro colouring to leave no observer in doubt, whilst the Retro Scooter Bowling Bag recaptures the irresistible image of the 60's; one that hasn't diminished through the years.

Whether you opt for a traditional leather holdall or one with a youthful spirit, these convenient carriers are a bag no man should be without. Ideal if your hotel has a gym or if your destination is not far away, holdalls were one of the first bags to be carried by man and aren't likely to be the last.
