I purchased these plants and want to know more about them. Could someone help me identify them? Also if you have any suggestions on taking care of them that would be great too! Thank you.

Clockwise starting at 9 o'clock, Gasteria or Gasteraloe, possibly 'Green Ice', 12 noon I forget, 3 o'clock is Aloe hybrid possibly 'Delta Lights' or 'White Fox', 6 o'clock is something like Gaptopetalum paraguayense, or a Graptopetalum/Echeveria hybrid, probably the former.

Of these plants, all are low-water plants that cannot take temperatures much below 32F; Gasteria/Gasteraloe is more of a shade plant while the others are more in the morning-sun/afternoon shade range for care. Indoors as much bright indirect light as possible year round for all of them; if the growth starts to stretch out you need to provide more light.

Make sure the mix they are planted in is gritty and free-draining. Often these things come planted in something like straight peat which is going to make them rot. Mist lightly on a regular basis to prevent spider mite infestations, Water maybe one every couple of weeks, watch and treat for mealybugs aggresively.
