Three affordable options....
There may be many others...

Flies Photo Gadget ($40), for use with any macro compatible phone or point & shoot (or DSLR) ... to-gadget/

If you have a DSLR and want to macro-ize it, the cheap lens extenders ($10) do work. Just get one compatible with your camera body & lens . ... er&sr=8-16

I use an old Nikon "micro" 55mm 2.8 lens, just to be a little different. I don't use special lighting and do it hand held at f/5.6 or 8 and 1/100 second. I saw one last year for $70 at a used camera counter (retail).

Both the extender and the old used lenses force you to manually focus and manually expose.
