There are many fittings available to help you do that job. We need to know what is coming out of the wall or what you currently have. If you can a post a picture it would be very helpful........... How-to-insert-pictures

If the drain pipe is still behind the vanity then it is a simple matter of fittings and pipes to get there. It does take some thinking which is probably you objection. The flipside of Do It Yourself is /Pain in the Ass.
But if it is so far off that it is exposed then you are right to think it is too much work. Put it back so at least it covers the pipes. Then go ahead with the pipes & fittings. It is very easy if it is plastic.
You do need to look into it further. They probably make a fitting just for that purpose but a plumber or plumber supply would know.
When I put in my kitchen sink drain I used a rubber coupling around the drain pipe out of the wall with hose clamps. I can't remember what was wrong with the original setup, which was threaded on. But I just redid everything else today and finally think I have it good. The rubber coupling still looks great. This had always been a cloggy set up and I have high hopes for the new geometry. Those threaded fittings with gaskets can be unstable. I was lucky I had old ones to supplement the kit because I botched one leg. You had to be there.

The one thing you need to observe is that the system slants at least slightly down towards the drain and not up-and-down. You can eyeball it better with a ruller.
