Hot Holiday Gifts Out of Stock

Photo Courtesy -- Getty Images(NEW YORK) – Procrastinators may have trouble finding last-minute gifts this holiday season, according to a Goldman Sachs study.

Some of the hottest holiday gifts are sold out at several major U.S. retailers, reports USA Today.

Shoppers may have trouble finding popular gifts like the Kindle on Amazon.com or the Monster High dolls at Toys "R" Us as retailers who were left with extra inventory the last two years approached this shopping season by ordering more conservatively.

The report showed that 76 percent of the hot gifts listed in the study were out of stock at Walmart.com. Forty percent of the same items are out of stock at Amazon and Target.

About 70 percent of the products listed as sold out had been advertised as being on sale.
