|All I know about those is that they have to come in before it freezes.|

|The Aeonium (dark leaved succulent) does well indoors for winter. Just have to watch for mealy bug. |
I'm not sure what the blue/green leafed succulent is, but it would do well indoors for winter as well.
I have kept them under my deck roof for winter in zone 8 and they did very well, but your zone 6 is to cold for that.
The other low growing bright green plant looks like a sedum, can't tell from this photo. If it is, it will do well outdoors with good drainage, over the winter.

|The gift pot isnt draining so I am going to pot the plants and keep them over winter inside.Then I can add the whole potted plant to a combo for the deck next summer.|

I also live in Zone 6 and have quite a few of these. I bring them indoors and put inside in a sunny window. I use a cactus soil and water about 2 times a month. Use your discretion. I usually have fairly good results.
