Good idea, when it comes to getting backlinks a little bit of creative thinking always helps.
Are you referring to a widget that does something e.g. displays the current weather in your hometown, that includes a backlink to your site as the developer? A lot of people develop software apps or WordPress themes for the same reason.
If you do, make sure you pay attention to the anchor text you use to improve the benefit from the backlink. It might also be an idea to hardcode the link so it cant be removed.
