TAYLOR Swift melted the hearts of hundreds of her fans by giving them hand-picked Christmas presents.

The 25-year-old singer went out and bought loads of gifts for her supporters - known as Swifties - before wrapping them up herself and sending them over the festive period, and a newly-release behind-the-scenes YouTube video has shown the incredible effort the blonde beauty went to for her fans.

Before the footage of the great Swift gift giveaway began, a message appeared on the clip explaining that the 'Out of the Woods' hitmaker had trawled her supporters' social networking pages to find her most diehard fans and get an idea of what they would want as a gift.

It read: "Shortly after the massively successful release of '1989', fans on social media began to experience another phenomenon.

"After something that became known as Tay-lurking, whereupon every detail of a fan's likes, job, whereabouts was studied intently ... a single Santa emoji would appear on their socials.

"From one Taylor Swift.

"Large Fedex boxes began to appear on the doorsteps of certain fans in what became tenderly referred to as 'Swiftmas'.

"These are their stories."

The clip then begins with Taylor pointing her camera at the enormous stack of presents she purchased and is then seen wrapping the hundreds of gifts in wrapping paper before covering them in bubble wrap and placing them in delivery boxes.

In one scene she is aptly dressed in a Santa hat and her pyjamas and she starts singing: "It's Christmas, I'm Santa Claus ... this is actually a Hanukkah present. It's the second day of Hanukkah so I don't want to miss the whole thing."

The video also sees Taylor talking to her two pet cats, Meredith Grey and Olivia Benson, named after characters in 'Grey's Anatomy' and 'Law & Order: Special Victims Unit' respectively, throughout as they help her with the wrapping.

She jokingly tells Olivia: "You're sitting on and biting the wrapping paper, it's really sped up the process. I'm sure Michelle will really appreciate having holes in her presents. Thanks, Olivia."

The clip then cuts to her fans' reactions at receiving the gifts and their genuine astonishment at getting a hand-written card from their heroine.

One girl could barely speak as she burst into tears while reading the words written from Taylor in her card, which said: "You are so devastatingly adorable."

Another fan turned her card around to the camera to reveal both sides completely covered in the blonde beauty's handwriting.

Taylor said: "There's this wonderful girl named Steph who I've met before. She has a tiny young son called Leyton who she posts videos of all the time but I've never got to meet him before.

"I guess we're just going to drive to Connecticut and bring Leyton some Christmas presents."

The next scene sees Taylor in her car and she says: "They have no idea we're coming. They should be in because they think they are getting a package from UPS but UPS is me."

She is then seen meeting Steph at her door and the super-fan bursts into tears before inviting Taylor in to give her presents to Leyton, who she bought a mini car.

The clip culminates with messages from her super-fans thanking her for the gifts and ends with a screenshot of Taylor giving little Leyton a cheeky kiss.
