For those of you who have been supporting Baku for years, you may have noticed that their online shop has been “coming soon” for a very long time…. about four years I believe in fact.

The time has finally come to do something about it and Lucid Design has taken up the task of making it happen.

We hope to launch the new site with full shopping cart facility within the next two weeks.

If you would like to be notified of the launch of the new Baku website, please visit and enter your email address.

Situated in the sunny Bay of Plenty, Grazie gifts came about as we decided we needed a little something extra in our lives – something we were passionate about, something we enjoyed doing, and something that would make people smile – and Grazie gifts was born.

We aim to scour high and low or North and South to find great tasting gourmet treats that not only look good but get those taste buds screaming, those perfect pamper products that will delighted you and awaken your senses.

We will be adding more products soon so keep checking back to see what we have uncovered in the great gift hunt.
