Welcome to the forum! I would recommend to stay in a town near the mountains which is easy accessible, and make day trips from there. Interlaken, or one of its surrounding villages, is what comes to my mind. Suggestions for relatively cheap hotels can be found on this website. As for traveling: a ticket for a budget airline or high speed train can be quite cheap, but that's usually only when you book well in advance (2-3 months) and not in high season. Many Europeans have a couple of days off around Christmas, so I would expect more travelers in the last week of December, which could result in more expensive tickets. I suggest to search for those tickets as soon as possible. CheapOair currently offers cheap tickets from Paris to Geneva for that week. Train tickets can be found here. A rail pass you might want to look into to get discounts on excursions is the Swiss Half Fare Card or Swiss Card.
I hope this gets you started!
