Hello DavidLux,

Plugins may contains widgets where a widget can not contain any plugin.

Widgets can be placed in sidebars (left & right or both), or in footer bars in your site.

Plugins contains some .php files, it can change your site's function. There are various types of plugins available on the market. Like spam blockers, page builder, video emblemer, force SSL etc.

In a widget you can add your latest tweets, archives, meta tags, latest posts & comments, emblem a video (you will need to know html or need a plugin), tags etc.

Widgets are for displaying something for your visitors, but plugins may be for any purpose on your blog

When we need to add extra features to our blog, we use related plugins whereas to show the features of some plugins on the blog, we use the widgets. Your can find some default widgets with WordPress script and plugins as well but most of the plugins you'll need to add to your blog.
