“Item Out of Stock”: The Importance of Updating Your Private Wish List

So you created your private Wish List with Gift Broker back in June and linked it to your social media. Great!

The Holidays roll around, and one cold winter day you receive an email that an item has been purchased off your Wish List– how exciting! But wait….there’s a follow-up email from Gift Broker….unfortunately the item is out of stock and has been for months.

This is a relatively common scenario for certain items such as clothing and shoes. Most retailers maintain only a season inventory of these items, and once an item is gone…..well, it’s gone. Gift Broker policy is to offer you an item of the same value from that retailer or alternatively a gift card. It is not possible for our system to automatically alert you when an item you have placed on your Wish List is out of stock. So that begs the next question…..

What can you do to avoid receiving an “item out of stock” email notification?

Update your private Wish List with Gift Broker periodically, ideally at least monthly. This is especially important if your Wish List contains seasonal items such as clothing and shoes. You won’t want to receive winter boots in the middle of July even if the boots are in stock. Have fun with it! Add both items you need and items you want. Remember to share your Wish List with friends and family on your social media pages!

Gift Broker’s Fall Gift Guide

It’s the season of change, and you know what that means– time to update your Wish List!

Check out these new fall pieces for some Wish List inspiration.


Capes are Trending Hard this Fall

The days may still be warm but the nights are chilly. Time to think about new outerwear. Capes are super cozy but still functional and on trend this season.

Fall is Boot Season

Can you ever have enough pairs of boots once the weather turns cold? Time to add to your Wish List!

Stuart Weitzman’s 5050 Over the Knee Boot is one classic boot that will never go out of style.

5050 Over-The-Knee Stretch-Leather Boots by Stuart Weitzman

Booties may not make as bold of a statement as over-the-knee boots, but are a fun way to update your look this fall.

Add Some Pumpkin Spice to Your Lingerie Collection

Warm colors and jewel toned lingerie are perfect for cold days inside the boudoir.

Accessorize With a New Scarf

Pair these scarfs with a cozy sweater or your new outerwear this Fall.

Animal Print Anything

Leopard and cheetah print in particular is literally everywhere this Fall season. Make a big statement with a full length cheetah print coat or add just a pop of animal print to your wardrobe with a new accessory.

Remember to Update Your Wish List Periodically

Check your Wish List every month or so to remove items that are sold out or no longer available.

Have fun updating it with new items! Happy Fall!
