I got given this as a present, and was wondering if anyone could give me help identifying what plants these are?

Apologies they are all in one picture, I couldn't seperate the photo very well

Thanks in advance!

That's a really pretty arrangement but, for long term success ....

Your plants are all succulents from top going clockwise, looks like a Jade plant (Crassula ovata), Cylindrical Snake Plant (Sansevieria cylindrica), Echeveria, and a Watch Chain Plant (Crassula muscosa). They would probably do well together in a community pot but will not survive in a pot with no drain hole.

Re-pot them into a shallow pot (wider than tall) using soil formulated for cactus and put them in a sunny window. Water only when the top inch of soil is dry.

Good luck!

Very nice present, you should follow the advise given by Daysi above if you wish them to thrive and multiply, (I will do it if it were mine), and after I have them established, then I will take few plants and rearrange them again like this one, for temporarily display if required.
The rosette like plant could also be sempervivum, and the sansivieria could also be of Sansevieria Fernwood ( A hybrid of Sanseveria cylindrical and S gracilis) (i learn that from @Stush2019 )
