    Talented means that someone is naturally good and DOING something specific (or many specific things).

    Gifted is broader. I could mean the same thing as talented, or it could mean that somebody has a physical or mental trait that is better than most people. Someone who is naturally very strong is gifted, but not necessarily talented. Likewise for someone who is extremely intelligent, or, depending on cultural values, very tall or beautiful.
