Small transistor to level shift 3.3v for Neopixels?

I'm making a PCB to connect some neopixels (WS2811) LEDs to an ESP32, which has 3.3 volt logic level.

In the past I've used the good ol 74AHCT125 transistor. Which works, but it's a bit large for my project. I was wondering if someone has a suggestion for an alternative? Possibly surface mount, but large enough that a surface mount soldering novice can still work with it?

Thanks for any help.

The data sheet for the device shows 7 or more SMT versions. Pick one.


Use the single gate version in the SOT-353 package, can’t get much smaller without going to a BGA package.
