Check this - I mean the concept, not necessarily the device:

Essentially you don't need a huge diffuser for tiny things at short working distances, but a small one helps - consider it a scaled-down flash umbrella. Large bounce-cards work too. Ordinary flash (or two of them) on a simple straight bracket with a small ball-head is fine too, especially if you carry it anyway.
