If a few of your widgets are temporary out of stock, why don't you just leave them up and put a "noindex,follow" tag.
Put a note saying to the effect "This item is on backorder, we will notify you when it's in" etc.
Take their email.
Offer other related product links, images, descriptions, etc.
When the widget is back in stock just change the meta tag.
