I recently received a really lovely succulent (I think?) houseplant as a gift but have no idea what exactly it is or how to care for it. Each one of those 3 smaller plants is about 5 or 6 inches across. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Looks like Echeveria, and looks like it's going to flower soon. If it's an indoor plant, try to provide hours of daily sun through the window, like right by an unobstructed window. Your sunniest indoor exposure. Outdoors the best location depends on your climate. Try to water when the soil is going dry, not a whole lot sooner. I like to use a rocky mix (50% pumice) to minimize the risk of rot. Given strong light and a rocky mix indoors, you might want to water every 7-10 days this time of year.

My pleasure. Here is some introductory text about Echeverias. If you're trying to pin down the species or hybrid, it really helps to have flower pictures.

It really looks like Graptoveria Debbie to me, which is a hybrid between Echeveria and Graptopetalum.

Graptoveria (XGraptoveria 'Debbie')

With sun stress they end up more purple like some of the photos in the database but they can go quite green if they don't get enough sunlight. If you Google it, you'll find quite a few that look even closer to what yours do. I may be incorrect, but the leaf shape, coloring and shoots strongly mean me in this direction.
