Taylor Swift has proven why she’s a great friend: The country singer, who is currently on tour, sent pal Selena Gomez a gigantic flower arrangement to celebrate her 17th birthday Wednesday.

“Taylor contacted Disney Channel to make sure she could send it to the studio,” says a Disney Channel spokesperson. “It was so big, two men had to carry it to the car!”

The Wizards of Waverly Place star also received homemade cards from fans and even a custom apron that reads “I Love Texas” – a shout-out to Gomez’s home state.

“All of my fans bought me so many gifts and just made me realize how blessed I am,” a teary Gomez said in a new YouTube video she posted for her fans. “Thank you guys so much for making this an amazing year You’ve made this the best birthday yet.”

There’s more to celebrate for the young actress: Following Friday’s episode of her Emmy-nominated Wizards, Gomez will debut her music video for her cover of the 1975 classic “Magic” off the soundtrack for the upcoming Wizards of Waverly Place movie.
