To Display description in wishlist you have to follow below steps-

Create a new file description.phtml at location

vendor/magento/module-wishlist/view/frontend/templates/item/column/description.phtml

In description.phtml add below code

<?php 
$item = $block->getItem();
$product = $item->getProduct();
?>
<strong class="product-item-description">
    <?php echo $block->escapeHtml($product->getDescription()) ?>
</strong>

Now at path

vendor/magento/module-wishlist/view/frontend/layout/wishlist_index_index.xml

in this file add below code after customer.wishlist.item.name block

<block class="Magento\Wishlist\Block\Customer\Wishlist\Item\Column\Info" name="customer.wishlist.item.description" template="item/column/description.phtml" cacheable="false"/>

Note:- Do not change in core files, add in your theme directory

EDIT : proper way to load data

Create a new block file in your custom module at path

app/code/Namespace/Module/Block

<?php
namespace Namespace\Module\Block;

class Description extends \Magento\Wishlist\Block\Customer\Wishlist\Item\Column\Info
{

  protected $_productloader;  


  public function __construct(
        \Magento\Framework\View\Element\Template\Context $context,
        \Magento\Catalog\Model\ProductFactory $_productloader

    ) {


        $this->_productloader = $_productloader;
        parent::__construct($context);
    }
    public function getDescription()
    {
        $id = $this->getItem()->getProduct()->getId();
        $this->_productloader->create()->load($id);
        return $product->getDescription();
    }

}

In layout file replace block class from Magento\Wishlist\Block\Customer\Wishlist\Item\Column\Info to Namespace\Module\Block\Description

After that in your template file you can get product description using below code

$block->getDescription();

To create a custom module you can follow this article

  • In the wishlist product object there is no description, so you may need to create a new block file and load product there
