After reading other posts on this website, i feel like a total noob for what im about to ask, but i guess everyone has to start somewhere. My girlfriend got me a couple plants from the local market for sweetest day. Nothing fancy i dont think. Only a few dollars a piece, but id like to take care of them and not only make them survive, but thrive and get them to be as big as possible to impress her. Attached are a couple photos. Thanks in advance

Hello! Your plants are succulents. Succulents do not require a lot of watering, nor sitting in moist soil for long. Do you pots have drainage holes? Drainage is important to succulents. Also, your soil should not be a poorly draining one, get one that is made for succulents. Leave the soil to dry between waterings.
They love a sunny windowsill! Good luck with them! :)
In some Native languages the term for plants translates to "those who take care of us."
