In the field of international relations, gifting has been one of the most important mediums of diplomacy. As a result of some political concerns or goals, diplomatic gift sending has lasted among states throughout history. In this context, this study aims to examine gifting tradition of the Ottoman State in the diplomatic area. We have preferred to make a comparative study, which documents that what sorts of gifts the Ottomans sent to a Muslim state, India and a non-Muslim state, Spain, is limited with the eighteenth century. Our main questions are how the Ottoman practice of diplomatic gifting in an Eastern country and Western one was, if there was a difference or similarity between the gifts that were sent to these states and if it is possible to talk about hidden messages beyond gifts.
