Hey, Big Spender! Celeb Parents Who Tip Well (Photos)

President Obama, Tipper-in-Chief

Plenty of people may find fault with President Barack Obama‘s economic policies, but not when it comes to his own personal spending habits!

According to a new story on celebrities who tip generously, the President has a rep for plunking down large gratuities when he dines out, even when the bill isn’t that big. He once left an $18 tip for a $2 beer in a North Carolina pub, and an impressive $200 tip for a modest burger lunch.

Not only is that kind of thoughtfulness appreciated by servers – who rely on their tips as part of their salary – it’s also a great lesson on generosity for the dad of Sasha and Malia to teach his children.

But the First Dad isn’t the only famous parent who sets a good example. Here are just a few others who are known around the restaurant world for giving props (and lots of $) for good service.

Becks is a superstar soccer player, dad - and tipper; he consistently makes the list of generous celebs. Maybe that's because he does things like leaving a $1,000 tip for a $100 meal.
