Taylor Swift is spending £50,000 ($96,651) on Beatles memorabilia for Harry Styles' Christmas present.

The country singer, 23, is desperate to get hold of some rare merchandise for her One Direction hunk boyfriend and stunned shop assistants specialising in the legendary 60s group with her extravagant budget.

"Harry spent £900 ($1739) on Taylor for her recent birthday and now she wants to repay the favour - and then some," a source told the Daily Star newspaper.

"She's been phoning Beatles stores in Liverpool hoping to find pieces of rare autographed memorabilia she knows Harry will love.

"A staff member at one store let slip she wanted to spend somewhere between £40,000 and £50,000."

Taylor turned 23 earlier this month and was showered with gifts by the British singer, including a Jimmy Choo bag, antique earrings, perfume, and a black and white photo of the I Knew You Were Trrouble hitmaker in a vintage frame.

Harry, 18, has previously praised The Beatles as "icons", and admitted he finds comparisons between his chart-topping group and the legendary rock band "ridiculous".

"We watched that film of The Beatles when they touched down in America and saw a likeness with our personalities. They loved having a laugh like us," he has said in the past.

"[But] the comparisons seem ridiculous to us, because they were such icons."
