Hilton, who works at Ogden, Utah's McKay-Dee Hospital, took to social media Sunday to thank the Grammy-winner, 30, for her act of kindness.
'I need to PUBLICLY THANK TAYLOR SWIFT @taylorswift & @taylornation13 @treepaine for sending me a box full of Merch & a PERSONALIZED LETTER from Taylor herself for my 30th birthday/for going to NYC to help as a nurse,' the medical professional wrote on Twitter.
She added, 'This was quite literally the BEST DAY OF MY LIFE.'
The Shake It Off singer's letter and gifts came as Hilton was turning 30; and had returned to her native Utah after she traveled to New York to assist staffers at Long Island Jewish Medical Center in the state's battle against the virus.
In her note, Swift, who is quarantining with her beau, 29-year-old English actor Joe Alwyn, showed her appreciation for the selfless efforts of Hilton and her peers in putting the heath of others ahead of their own as the world fights the novel virus.
'I wanted to send you some presents and to let you know I am so grateful for you. I can't thank you enough for risking your life to help people and for spreading the message loudly that people need to hear about taking this seriously,' the Look What You Made Me Do singer told the nurse in the note. 'Also, I saw the photo of you from my show! Thank you for coming! I would love to give you a hug next time and thank you in person.'
Swift ended the note 'with love and admiration' for the healthcare professional.
Hilton last month detailed her experience in a blog posted on Intermountain Healthcare, describing the situation in New York as 'a modern war' amid a massive spate of infections.
'This is a humbling experience. I have so much to say but almost too overwhelmed to say it all,' Hilton said. 'New York has been hit HARD. The people need help, the nurses need help, the doctors need help, everyone needs help.'
She called the battle on the frontlines in New York - where more than 19,000 had died as of Sunday, according to The COVID Tracking Project reported - 'crisis mode like I've never seen.'
As of Sunday, the death total for COVID-19 was at 61,868 people in the U.S., with 1,152,006 total positive diagnoses, The COVID Tracking Project reported.
On a global level, 247,431 people have died amid 3,506,729 positive diagnoses worldwide, Johns Hopkins University reported.
