It's not a giant wall of flowers, it's not an entire island, but Kim Kardashian has been gifted something a bit 'terrifying' on her 40th birthday.

Kim Kardashian West received what she described as the 'most thoughtful gift of a lifetime' from husband Kanye West - a hologram of her father who died in 2003.

The 40-year-old shared a video of her late father Robert Kardashian in a 3D hologram form and said it filled her with emotion.

"For my birthday, Kanye got me the most thoughtful gift of a lifetime. A special surprise from heaven. A hologram of my dad," she tweeted.

"It's so lifelike! We watched it over and over, filled with emotion."

The two and a half minute video showed late Robert Kardashian speaking to her as if he were still alive.

"Happy birthday Kimberly," he said.

"Look at you, you're 40 and all grown up. You look beautiful just like when you were a little girl."

"I watch over you and your sisters and brother and the kids every day. Sometimes I drop hints that I'm around."

"The most beautiful thing that I have witnessed is watching you grow your family."

"You married the most, most, most, most GENIUS man in the world, Kanye West," he added.

"You are the most, most, most, most amazing mother to your four beautiful children. They are perfect."

"Keep doing what you're doing, Kimberly. You are a beautiful soul. Know that I am very proud of you and I am always with you."

The gift, however, didn't appeal to some, as commenters described the video as "terrifying".

"This is terrifying! And I say that as someone who misses her father terribly," one person wrote on Twitter.

Others said it was an opportunity for Kanye to steal the spotlight.

"'The most, most, most brilliant man' is a stretch and kind of throws the whole thing off. Kanye still found a way to make it about him… it would have been perfect without that," said another.
