(comment from a guy...)
Electrics come in two main styles, foil head and rotary head. People tend to have an attitude about which they prefer. Braun is probably the best brand for foil type, and Norelco (Philips outside the US) for rotary, but Panasonic and Remington are also good. Avoid off-brands and cheapies. I like the rotary style better so I always buy Norelco.
Recent fancy features include razors that dispense lotion while you use them, and razors that come with "automatic" cleaning bases (identified by names like Jet Clean). Both of these are love 'em or hate 'em propositions, no middle ground. If your guy is the type to get the complicated features and still use them a year later, go for it. Otherwise I say no, get the simple model of the high-priced line rather than a fancy model of the cheaper line. That way you get the best quality of the cutting machinery for your money.
For someone who travels a lot, a fancy base or even a simple charging base can a nuisance compared to a simple charging cord.
