You can grow Aloe Vera in small pots and, as they are generally dry weather plants, they will not need much water. The plant will need lots of sunlight so make sure that the pot is placed in an open and well-lit place. Window sills are very well suited for this plant. You can harvest the plant off and on and use the gel as the plant grows new leaves.
