Gadgets are applications. You store it in your located folder. Even If you remove it from your desktop, still it should be there where you kept it. But sometimes gadgets are problematic.  If you use default gadgets, then you should find it in the " control panel" Go to Control Panel and then go to desktop gadgets. You can use it again.

If you do not find  it now, then you have to re install windows 7 . This will help you to recover your gadgets.

If you do not want to reinstall, then you can use another way. You can try SFC or scan now. It helps to regain the lost items. Its a bit quicker then reinstalling. Go  to Control Panel . Just click on programs and features then go to" Turn windows feature on or off" then go to "uncheck windows gadgets platform" and click " ok" I think this might help you. 

Thank you for your valuable question.
