wishlist_add_product give us 3 parameters

            ['wishlist' => $wishlist, 'product' => $product, 'item' => $result]
  • wishlist : it give customer wishlist object.. At observer you can get wish object by $observer->getEvent()->getWishlist();
  • product: it give customer just added product object. At observer you can get product object by $observer->getEvent()->getProduct();
  • item: current add wishtlist item . At observer you can get product object by $observer->getEvent()->getItem();

So, at observe you can product id from $observer->getEvent()->getProduct()->getId()
